This is a part i scratch built and after it is put together, you will only see it when the wheels are turned to the right and you are looking for it.  But wanted to add the detail.

Great build, I look forward to the rest. I started to build this kit a couple of years ago but paused it when I had problems fitting the body to the interior and chassis maybe I applied too thick paint. Anyway watching your build got my interest back in having another go with mine.

Looks great so far Darren. Your models always crack me up - love the no-holds-barred approach to doing whatever you want. Sad about the other projects being lost - I can remember following along and enjoying each change and addition.

You need to get some Waxoyl or some Dinitrol on that front end!

Very convincing.

Have some more updates, but very little. Having a builders block on how to finish weathering on body, how to hide the attachment points on the underside of hood where the hinges meet. Hope you finish yours soon, would like to see it.

Erik, thank you for following my builds. I thought by now I would be over losing the other in progress builds by now. Almost a year since it happened, but still cuts deep. Hopefully some day I can chalk it up to just a bad mistake.

I found another heat sink from an old electronic device, thinking of adding it to this build.

Wow Darren, somehow I missed a lot of updates on this one. You've been busy!

I like the theme (really more of a composition actually) for this one and your weathering effects are very convincing.

I'm glad this popped back up in mu que.

Regards,

David G.

David, thank you. The picture I uploaded right before this post is the idea I have for the hood, kinda like a rat rod that has aspirations to be made in to a show car. Alot of the old lowriders that were on the show circuit have ended up in the junk yard, all faded out and dull paint. That is what I am looking to make the hood look like.
